4. The affordability and marketability of your house must be in equilibrium or must be balance, so that when things will no be okay in the near future as you tumbled upon a financial difficulties, you have an option of selling your house at a higher price.
5. Consider the size of your family. When you are newly married, plan ahead, invest in a home where your future children can each have a room and ample space for them to roam and un around free. It is wiser to purchase a one-bedroom to two- bedroom unit rather than cash on in a studio-type unit.

8. Go for a long-term, fixed home lending rates. Homes are actually considered good debts so as to speak, they provide you shelter and equity in an asset that you can sell in the future, in other words, your house is not just a dream come true thing for you, but also a form of saving.
9. Put your family first before anything else. Cheaper alternative is indeed tempting but remember that the interest and comfort of your family should always come first. Give them a house which they can genuinely call home.
10. Think carefully and objectively. Take your time weighing the factors in buying your house to help you choose the right house for you and your family. Doing things the proper way will aid you in enjoying the dream house you are searching for.
